Cowbridge Rotary Club

maria lyn.jpg resizedmaria lyn in red.jpg resized"Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the water, the cruise ship comes to you! That’s what it felt like on Friday night at Cowbridge School, when Maria Lyn had a wonderful Valentine’s Day show based on her successful act for the cruise ships of Saga, Fred Olsen and the like. It wasn’t only the fact she’s got a superb voice that makes her such a hit with audiences around the world - she’d been in the Caribbean two days before - but it’s the way she charms and interacts with that sea of faces in the dark in front of her with professional warmth and skill so they all leave at the end of the evening smiling and laughing. It was a great night out."

Let's Dance End Of Summer Dance 2013

"Well where do I start?!  What a fabulous evening!  A HUGE thank you to everyone who bought tickets to our first event after our Summer break, it was so nice to see everyone back and to welcome some new faces to Let's Dance events.  The evening kicked off at 7.30pm, we saw quite a few people getting there early, with some general dance music playing, lights dimmed, fairy lights on and a lovely dance floor waiting to welcome everyone.  Then for our surprise of the evening, Maria Lyn took to the stage, she was awarded the Best Cruise Entertainer of the Year 2012, she has performed in the 4 corners of the World and tonight she was all ours!  What a fabulous voice!  Once everyone had listened to her first song she invited everyone to take to the dance floor for Rumbas, Cha Cha Chas, Foxtrot and finished up with some great Jives.  We were so lucky to have had her entertain us, hopefully we will be able to have her back some time in the future.  The evening finished up with more general dancing, and I must say the floor was constantly full with couples dancing all the Ballroom and Latin dances, the Hustle, even the Twist!  The Last Waltz followed seeing everyone up dancing, and Maria Lyn ended the evening with her rendition of 'Time To Say Goodbye' which received a great show of appreciation.  Well as I said 'What a Night'! and we are now looking forward to our next event on the 23rd November which will be a Rock and Roll Party Themed Night!"

"Maria, Maria, Maria, as the fairy dust slowly settles from the celebrations for Kathryn and Dan's wedding, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the huge part you played in making our evening event such a success.  We could not have asked for more - you threw yourself into the spirit of things and provided a tailor made entertainment that is the stuff of dreams. We have received so many cards of appreciation and you are named all the time; I know Kathryn and Dan listened to your CD last week and greatly enjoyed it, especially when Larry got an honourable mention!  With very best wishes and huge thanks to you both for your input."
